Announcement   Hi. Welcome to my esty shop. After a couple years doing shows and focusing on direct to customer sales I'm back with some new work and a whole new shop. Over the next several months I will be updating my shop with new items ranging from wallets and belts to books and bags. I even have a few exciting new specialized items I'm looking forward to sharing with you. I still hand make every single item from start to finish in my Montreal workshop. I'm very excited to exclusively use Wickett and Craig leathers for all my online customers. This high quality leather is vegetable tanned in the US. Visit their website if you would like to learn more about their environmental policy and their process. If you have any questions please feel free to message me or check out my web site at http://marcsimardartisan.com.
Thanks

Excellent quality materials and workmanship. The proportions are all right, and I love having a deeper cash compartment so I can put Euros in there without having them stick out the top (wallets in the US tend to be shorter). n

About

Hand Made

With so many options in this world I sometimes find it hard to know where to put my focus and energy. Should I put energy into online sales, doing shows, or selling in boutiques. Being a one person show I find it difficult to effectively manage all of these to a standard I'm satisfied with. So I recently decided that my main focus will be handmade, high quality, functional and sustainable items for my customers. I know I'll slowly get better at the online marketing and slowly find the best shows for me and perfect boutiques I might want to work with. However all that was secondary to satisfied customers.
I'm just one person, trying my best and wanting the best for my customers, the environment, my family and ultimately for myself.

    I've been working with leather for over 12 years. I'm self taught and design/hand make every single piece myself in Montreal, QC. I strive to provide my customers with well designed, functional and sustainable items they will use for years to come.

For me there are three main reasons why I like hand made objects. First you know who made it which supports the artist and alternative consumption. The second is that as you learn about an artist you become aware of the quality of their work and can be assured that they do their best to provide this high quality for all their work as it is their name that is behind it. The third is that you get something that is not generally mass produced. For example I real leather which is also natural in origin so there are natural markings that make each piece beautiful and special. Slight variations in colour and texture are common with natural materials, so you can expect these. Rest assured though that you will receive a high quality product that meets your expectations. Thanks

I ship to Canada and the U.S. using small packet service through Canada Post. Unfortunately this does not include a tracking #.

For international shipping please ask for any special requests before payment so that we can include any extra charges on the original bill. I usually ship within the week of purchase for regular purchases. Special orders are shipped after approval of the finished product.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom work is really appreciated. I love making things for people with their input. I don't just make anything though. For me a custom piece is transforming one of my design to better suit a customer. If I have to work on sketches, new patterns or designs the price is worked out according to time involved. I still like to keep it reasonable so do not be afraid to ask any questions, who knows what is possible.
